to this decision from former pennsylvania governor ed rendell and mayor michael nutter. >>> who will bring the dynamite to denver? a little over the a day for the presidential debate. both president obama and mitt romney getting ready for their first face-off tomorrow night in colorado. doing the hefty lifting on the number two on the ticket and the candidates' wives. mitt romney is in denver where last night he tried to put the kibosh on predebate winning. >> people want to know who is going to win, who will make the biggest difference and scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> his rival president obama who is in day number three of debate camp in nevada dropped by one of his own campaign headquarters. >> it was very nice, you know. although, basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they are making me do my homework.
chief from "time" michael crowley. last night conservative pundits whipped themselves into a frenzy of expectation, previewing a video of president obama they predicted would change this election as we know it. the daily caller which eventually posted the tape tweeted, obama bombshell video coming soon. check back here at 9:00 p.m. for the full story. the drudge report ran the massive headline obama's other race speech. and just before air time, sean hannity teed up the earth-shattering discovery. >> bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race for the white house because tonight you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before, a video has been uncovered. it contains some of the most divisive class war fair and racially charged rhetoric used by barack obama. >> what piece of sonds pulled from the deepest archives would instantly dismantle president obama's campaign, his entire presidency and forever change the course of the country? a 5-year-old video that everybody saw five years ago. the bombshell of the widely covered speech at hampton university fe
correspondent michael isikoff joins us now from outside the courthouse. so, michael, explain how this all went down inside. >> reporter: well, as you mentioned, thomas, it was an emotional, at times gut-wrenching hearing. at least two of the victims who gave statements fought back tears as they talked about the damage sandusky had done to them, but probably the single most powerful moment was from victim number four, who did not break down, seemed almost angry and said "i can never forgive you" to sandusky, addressing him. and among the damage he had done, he cannot let his own child out of sight because of fear of what might happen to him. that's the lasting impact of what jerry sandusky had done to him. jerry sandusky himself gave a long, rambling statement all over the map, seemed to duplicate some of what you heard in that audio statement, and he himself broke down and fought back tears towards the end, but it was hard to see the point that he was going to make. it was very clear, by the way, that judge cleland was not happy about that audio broadcast and talked when he sentenced sandusky,
seen a lot of advertising specifically targeted women here in colorado. >> when michael bennett was running for the u.s. senate those women issues came up again and again and really did turn a great number of voters in the direction of michael bennett. >> i know you are having a fight between the state and localities having to do with fracking and you want to expand energy. it sounds like romney would be on your side on some of these things and the stereotype would be the president wouldn't be on your side with some of these things. >> the president has been. the president asked to look into fracking and found it was safe if done properly. you have to make sure like with any industrial process you don't want people making mistakes. if you look at what inexpensive natural gas has done our co 2 emissions are down where they were during eisenhower's presidency. we are half the way towards achieving protocol even though we didn't vote to accept it. many ways it is a game changer. it is cheaper and creates jobs and cleaner for the air. >> and then colorado will have a boom. >> we are
. >> so, historically, have these showdowns made a real difference in the race? i'm joined now by michael beschloss. good to see you. good morning. >> same here, chris. >> we know mitt romney is practicing, but are they ever spontaneous or always rehearsed? >> they're usually rehearsed because there's too much at stake and you're right. sometimes, a pennant can say something that sounds so rehearsed it just doesn't work. for instance, george h.p. bush when he was vice president was debating against geraldine fer row and said why not harvest moon. >> challengers can benefit from being on stage with an incumbent. we've seen that before. take a look at this clip. >> ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? >> now, this race has often been compared to the carter reagan race in 1980 and the romney campaign has used that line of attack. is that the idea of what you think we might hear tonight? what kind of zinger are we going to hear? >> well, in reagan's case, he took from franklin roosevelt, who used that in the 1930s over the radio, so these things have a long lineage.
. we'll talk to democratic senator michael bennett. this is "andrea mitchell reports" live in denver only on msnbc. i'm with sandra who just got these great glasses. you hmmm. let's see if walmart can help you find the same look for less. okay. see? walmart has all these leading eyewear brands and styles. rockstar! really? yeah. oh, wow! oh, black frame looks good on you. yeah? you can get a complete pair starting at just -- $38. really?! and did you know that our glasses come with a free 12-month replacement guarantee? i didn't know walmart had all this. the price is impressive, the quality is too! come to walmart and see for yourself. find quality eyewear brands starting at just $38. only at walmart. what are they fitting, aliens? >>> tonight's debate here in colorado a state that president obama won by nine points in 2008, but colorado's become a key battleground in 2010. michael bennett won by only two points. senator bennett joins me now. thanks so much. >> welcome back. >> it's great to be here. i love colorado. we all love colorado. it has been tightening. how is i
, barack obama is a black man. michael, i've read your outstanding piece in which you talk about the fact that the process of fact-checking by voters has actually declined. it's almost a suggestion we've had so many lies through this campaign, and i can think of at least 60 delivered by the romney/ryan camp, that people are just not responding to it anymore. >> you know, the irony is the press is actually much better at calling out these deceptions but the public has not yet shown they are willing to move on these deceptions. they don't -- they for give their own guy for deceiving and they love blaming the other guy for deceiving. there hasn't been any punishment. if you're a political consultant or political professional, you know other than sending eames to fact-checking sites or writing an open letter, you don't have to worry too much if your ad contains something, which several of these ads have. you've discussed a number on your show that aren't factually accurate. >> john, isn't the temptation for the president here, who, let's be honest, is a very self-controlled and disciplined ma
't want to be there. we heard all those analogies today. but i found it interesting that michael moore blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been painted in the media and by the obama campaign for the last seven or eight months. and then the person they saw last night. that's why i think it was so effective for mitt romney because people were so surprised. wait, like who is this guy? this is not the guy we thought he was. and so he had a great debate. incumbents presidents usually don't do well on the first debate in their election year. so obama will ha
. >> michael kirk is one of the producers of the choice 2012. he's joining me live from new york. and welcome to you, michael. i read your resume. you covered just about everything. i'm fascinated to see this, as you tout this long view of these men's lives. and the promise is that this documentary will take us beyond the sound bites, beyond the ads, the sales pitches. tell me, it sounds like you and your crew talked to a lot of people to get inside the lives of both of these men. >> more than 100 of them, friends, family, enemies, journalists, authors, almost everybody we could dredge up over the last year for two hours, 2 a1/2 hours. i think the challenge was formidable. who do you te the life story and new things about maybe the most famous person in the world, barack obama, or in romney's sense, a man everybody told us was the hidden man, that's the way they described him. and it was a real treat to finally get inside and finally discover what i think we have discovered and what we put on our film tomorrow night. >> and to help americans, of course, make that choice, right, come november
which i'll get to. senator michael beties, a democrat here in his home state and michael steele, the former chairman of the republican national committee. both howard and michael are political msnbc analysts. i'll start with an elected official. the people that worked for the president had to come out and say he did well. everyone else said he didn't. >> i was in the hall so i can say i haven't seen it on tv. but on the substance, in colorado, we're a third republican and a third democratic and a third independent and we don't like people to say one thing in boston, one in denver and one thing in rural and one thing in urban and i think we heard more of that from mitt romney. >> who called him on that? we went an hour and a half before i went -- a couple days ago he talked about the pre-existing coverage and now you're saying you have a program and i'm going to take nationally based on the principles of massachusetts. >> i'll you another example that infuriates me. this $716 billion medicare issue in ryan's plan. >> the number? >> yeah. romney tonight said the reason he thinks w
and box your opponent in. >> we'll see if there's a clear winner. thank you very much, michael. thank you, chris. it's always a pleasure. >>> a huge victory for democrats in pennsylvania in a hard-fought battle against that state's new voter i.d. law for now. a judge in the past few hours blocked the law from goalkeeper into effect. judge simpson ordered the sat not to enforce the voter i.d. requirement in this year's election, but it will go into full effect next year. opponents of the law say it would hurt voter turnover, especially among minorities and the leeld he who are likely to vote for democrats in that state. it was in june that a top state republican lawmaker predicted the law would help governor romney. >> which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> and joining us now, judith brown, diana's co-director of the advancement project, a civil rights organization that filed the lawsuit. thank you for your time. we played that state lawmaker who said if that law was in effect in pennsylvania, he felt that governor romney would win that state, do
panel now. dana mill bank, political cl columnist, michael crowley, and here in new york ron christie. dana, if i might start with you. an insightful political observer such as yourself has seen these two gentlemen in many a debate. but if your path to success relies on mitt romney's comic timing, isn't the zinger likely to become something of a boomerang and hit mr. romney instead of his opponent? >> you know, everybody always remembers the great zingers. you know, usually something from ronald reagan, but here we go again expecting that people are going to try a little bit too hard. there's a real danger when you've been supplied with premixed, ready-made zingers to insert into the debate that mitt romney will insert them at the wrong time or say them not quite right. the only thing worse than having no zinger is having a zinger that comes off badly and comes back to bite you. so i think that's a perilous way to go, but i'll be there in denver, and i look forward to the attempts because it will make it far more interesting. >> indeed. we're delighted, ron, that you're here. you have

? >> progressives from chris matthews to bill maher to michael moore all across the progressive wing of the democratic party, there's great disappointment. >> they were jumping out of their seats watching. >> i understand. i understand there was a hunger for us to attack romney more personally than the president did last night. >> bottom line, romney scores, but was last night the first to game-change his campaign and what they sorely needed? >> the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. >> i think governor strickland was watching a different debate from me and the american people. >> yeah, big bird got hit by the bus last night. joining me is ed schultz, good to have you here. i was watching you last night, your immediate reaction saying that the president was off his game. you were stunned. and then you had this exchange with david plouffe from the obama campaign after the debate. take a look. >> mr. plouffe, why didn't the president mention tonight that we have had 30 months of private sector job growth? that's a heck of a n
aggressive, which is what they worried about. >> michael, some of the people asked right after the debate which candidate did the best. 67% said mitt romney, 25% said barack obama. i want to play what chris matthews said last night and what he said this morning live on "today." let me play it. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down. he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. he had a plan. he was going to dominate the time and be aaggressive. i thought romney was excellent with his civility, his respect for the office of president. i think he handled it beautifully. i think the president could have done the same thing and sliced through all the claims by romney. romney has been accused of etch-a-sketch. last night was his greatest achievement. >> david axelrod and david plauffe were out today and didn't admit it wasn't a great debate for the president, which is to be expected. do you think chris's sentiment is a reflection of many of the democrats that supported the president or independents that suppo

there but the race could be more competitive than it looks with still more than a month some go. michael coleman is the washington bureau chief for the albuquerque journal. your sense of things was that the race was closer. do you feel that way now? >> i do feel that way the national polls have had the race as much as 10, 14 points. we had a poll that showed the race 5 points a couple of weeks ago. it will be interesting to see what happens in the next 30 days. you hit the nail on the head when you said romney's performance among hispanic voters in new mexico will be absolutely critical. jenna: anything in the debate you think will particularly resonate with the residents of new mexico and maybe even that voting block? >> one of the things that i thought was effective for mitt romney in that debate was that he performed well obviously, and secondly people in new mexico haven't seen much of mitt romney he's a little bit of an enigma to us. based on some of the characterizations so far he was seen as gaffe-prone and elitist. he didn't make any major gaffes and he was compassionate at times. i thin

with this group of voters, it was george h.w. bush. and he just barely eked out a 1% lead over michael dukakis. this has been a difficult voting bloc with republicans. >> sure has been. i don't think the romney campaign has expectations of being even with the president among women voters on election day. i think they would be thrilled to be within a handful of points because they can make gains elsewhere. if he is anywhere close to even, that is big win and i think likely means romney victory on november 6th. martha: you know, certainly would tend to substantiate the romney argument that women voters are just like other people. women are just like other people, news flash and they are interested in the economy and when you look at, you know the folks that were out there during the democratic convention, sandra flush and a lot of -- fluke, specific issues on abortion and like, it would appear after this last debate we know what resonates more solidly with women? >> i think that is exactly right. all along we looked at the election may have started out with a referendum on president obama's poli
